Young people do not want to work in the car industry, survey shows

Only 28 percent of the young people who are currently facing the prospect of entering the labor market can see themselves working in the automotive industry, a new survey shows.

There is a labor shortage in the automotive industry.

A survey has already shown that every second mechanic has considered quitting. And now the already large labor shortage in the car industry risks getting worse.

This is written by Automobilwoche .

A new survey shows that only 28 percent of young people find it either attractive or very attractive to work in the car industry.

And not only are the future generations on the labor market significantly fewer in number. Fewer of them also cannot see themselves working for either manufacturers, suppliers and/or car dealers.

A few years lie ahead, when a large generation – namely the so-called baby boomers – will otherwise retire. This leaves large gaps in the labor market and thus also in the car industry.

And while there are numerous examples of how both the car brands and their subcontractors are busy firing people to save huge sums of money, there are also examples of several hundred jobs being cut.

Aston Martin is one of the car brands that is currently looking for several hundred people for new positions at the factory in Gaydon, England. Read more about it here.

At home, several media reports the other way around, how Novo Nordisk, due to large-scale expansion plans, almost vacuums the market for e.g. mechanics.

The auto industry itself says that there is no way to keep up with the wages that the pharmaceutical giant offers the mechanics.

Lasse Fredskov, headhunter at the company Autosearch, confirms to Sjællandske Nyheder that Novo's offer makes it difficult for others to find mechanics in Greater Copenhagen and in Zealand in general.
